‘You Have A Learning Disability’: Gingrich Mocks NBC Reporter At Point Blank

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich mocked an NBC reporter Thursday after he was asked about the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot.

Gingrich was on Capitol Hill to campaign with Republicans as they push their “Commitment to America” platform should they take back the House in November. Gingrich co-wrote the 1994 “Contract with America” that helped Republicans win back the House.

NBC senior congressional correspondent Scott Wong asked Gingrich what he thinks about the Jan. 6 committee.

“I don’t,” Gingrich said.

“You have no thoughts about the committee itself?” Wong pressed.

“I think you have a learning disability,” Gingrich responded. (RELATED: Newt Gingrich Says People Who Broke Into The Capitol Have To Be ‘Arrested’ And ‘Prosecuted’)

“Excuse me?” Wong responded.

“The fact is, I’ve said three or four times, I don’t talk about it,” Gingrich said, pointing to his own head. “Try the phrase: I don’t talk about it.”

Gingrich has been a point of focus for the Jan. 6 committee, which claims Gingrich “was in contact with senior advisors to President Trump regarding television advertisements that relied upon and amplified known false claims about fraud in the 2020 election” and that he “was involved in various other aspects of the scheme to overturn the 2020 election and block the transfer of power, including after the violence of January 6th.”
